It's a Small World

You know the saying...."it's a small world?" I found out this weekend that the saying is completely true. After a short hiatus from blogging I just had to get on this weekend and tell all of my lock family about my experience. Do you know the familiar face picture with me?

Ok, for those of you who don't know......it's Chocolocs and while in church on Sabbath she recognized Praline21 as she ushered during the service. Afterwards, Chocolocs found her way towards me, our eyes met, we immediately recogninzed each other and embraced like Celie & Nettie from the Color Purple!

Turns out that Chocolocs is also a Seventh-day Adventist and was in town for a wedding. She's friends with the Groom and I'm friends with the Bride, who is also member of my church. Wow, too much information but we just could not believe how this all took place. So, here she is all the way from Michigan for a wedding and ends up visiting my home church!!!! Can you believe it?

Chocolocs has the most beautiful head of locs, bright in color and a perfect bill of healthy locks. If I had to compare, I'd say hers looks exactly like Blaqkofi's and if the two of them were ever in the same room together....they'd be lock twins.

As for me, I'm just letting my 3 year old locks do their own thing, not much in to styles these days. I'm loving the flow of them as well as free styling due to my work out frequency of five days a week. Yep, I'm addicted and decided to make serious lifestyle changes including changing my diet. With that lifestyle change comes the convenience of wearing locks!

Chocolocs, it was a pleasure meeting you, your locs are to die for and I hope to see you again in the near future.

It is really a small world.

Creyole,
Wow! Your locks are growing like crazy. I too have missed reading your post but I completely understand about going on bloging hiatus. It's really nice to see pics too when someone has been away for awhile. You and Chocolocs are definitely poster children for a healthy set of locs. You go ladies!

Jenn said...

Yes ma'am.. It is indeed a small world. Just never know who you will run into. And both you have beautiful, gorgeous locks..

Gotta love them...

Linda said...

Wow, both of you ladies have beautiful locks and they are growing. We should plan to have a meet and greet for all the SDA locked sisters that we can gather up. Maybe at General Conference in Atlanta in 2 years. That would be cool to get smaller groups together within our regions and then have one big get together then. Isn't wonderful to have the opportunity to meet someone in worship and share so much in common?

Naturally Sophia said...

Wow, both of you look excellent. I can't believe how fast your locks are growing.

Wendi aka "Wendosa" said...

Good to see both of you. I am SDA as well here in the DC area. I love both of your blogs and I think what Linda said is a great idea. Meeting up at the next GC is a great idea. I see that the Dallas crew really have gelled and committed to gatherings. I don't know of any in this area. I have had my ups and downs thru this process but I am hanging in there. Keep blogging and you look great! Love to keep up with your daughter as well. Should send her to PFA (my alma mater) and let her get into the choir!!! She would LOVE it...

Glad to see you blogging again, congrats to making it to three years.

Chocolocs said...

Creole, it was wonderful meeting you! I honestly felt "Star-Struck" when I saw you, as though I was meeting a celebrity! And yet, I felt like I was meeting an old friend I hadn't seen in years. Thank you for the motivation to get back on my blog. I've finally posted some blogs, I wanted to fill in the missing 10 months of my journey. Check it out!

I like Linda's idea about having an SDA SisterLocks meet and greet at the next General Conference. However, I'm so impatient, I don't want to wait two years. Hmmm . . . Let's see what happens :-)

CarmenNC said...

I think you both have wonderful locks. I have said many times before - I hope mine turn out like Creyole's. I have always liked how your hair looked in this post - http://creyole.blogspot.com/2007/01/i-got-tagged.html

Creole,
I followed the "Sabbath" link on your blog. "The Sabbath Truth" is so well presented I would love to have that link from my blog also. Would you mind if I copied the link?

Ruth said...

Howdy from JA, I recognise you from 3ABN and I love your locks. I have thought about it, but chickened out at the fact that it was a bit too permanent (I don't have the face to go with a 'fro if I decide to change). I do have shoulderlength natural hair though, so I'm-a-rope-twisting and fine-plaiting over here. Blessings.:D

Lotsa length, Creole. Happy to see you post again!
